Even though the lawyer is not following the judgment of the judge?Can they drag their feet like this when my daughters credit is at stake and her ex can just laugh and get away with not having to pay anything. Doesnt what the judge rules enforceable? Can they decide they are not going to give her the money out of the 457B even though it was the ruling of the court?
this is now the fifth time that the QDRO has been rejected and needs revision. You would think that by now someone would get it right. I am glad it has to be honored but in the meantime my daughter is losing faith in her lawyer and her ex husbands that they can get this done. Thank you so much for answering these questions. We did not know where to go to get these answers. I am glad that they do have to honor the ruling but it is sad that it has to take this long. Thanks again.
